Get Shirty: Which Fashion Tribe Do You Belong To?

From Taller Marmo to Cédric Charlier and Rosie Assoulin, Racil, Preen, and Nora Al Shaikh, the top trending item in high summer collections has been the reworked shirt. As we move into Fall 2017, the swing towards deconstructed tailoring, contemporary button-down tops, and off-the-shoulder tops with a twist still features in abundance in collections from Eastern and Western designers. Only five days into New York Fashion Week Spring 2018 and the shirt and edgy cotton poplin top has featured heavily in the wardrobes of stylish show-goers. This is good news because not only can you keep your high summer staples and layer them up with new winter pieces, this trend is ideal for the Middle East’s climate.

These featherweight tops are a wardrobe staple that prove ultra versatile in hot weather. They are easy to layer up and offer protection from the sun while still hitting the mark for cutting edge cool. Sold.

The fashion desk has been taking note and can see two clear style tribes forming among the ranks of the best dressed women. The sartorial camp are wearing classic shirts with sleeves rolled up or half tucked into a pair of chichi pants, while the street style mavens are opting for cold-shoulder tops that bare the décolletage and feature fly-away ruffles galore.

While you can tap into either look throughout winter – as both are a strong key piece in your wardrobe – click through the gallery above to see the trends in action at NYFW. Take note.
